New York Elementary School

The Lawrence school district is inviting parents, students, staff and community members to complete an online survey to aid with the search for the next principal of New York Elementary School.

The survey can be found on the home page of the district website, www.usd497.org. The deadline to complete the survey is 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The survey is designed to gain community input regarding the leadership qualities desired in the next principal, according to the district’s website. The district says that the responses, which will remain anonymous, will be compiled and used by the interview committee throughout the selection process.
